A still sharper region where p(x) - li(x) is positive**

Saputer, Yannick; Trudgian, Timothy; Demichel, Patrick


We consider the least number x for which a change of sign of π(x) − li(x) occurs. First, we consider modifications of Lehman’s method that enable us to obtain better estimates of some error terms. Second, we establish a new smaller upper bound for the first x for which the difference is positive. Third, we use numerical computations to improve the final result.
